This one-of-a-kind handbook combines for the first time an authoritative Who's Who of antiquity's biggest and baddest beasts with a Top Trumps-style inventory of winning weapons with which to defeat them. Included are classics such as the dragon, the hydra, the cyclops and the werewolf, and lesser-known creatures such as the hellhound, the basilisk, the manticore and the sasquatch, as well as tricky species like the fairy and the centaur which until now you may have mistakenly thought were on our side. Each monster entry includes notes on origin, background, strengths and weaknesses, available souvenirs and suggested further reading, while the weapons section boasts in-depth historical background and possible applications, in particular which monsters from the book can be dispatched with them. This hilarious and eye-opening book is set to revive the ancient art of monster hunting for a whole new generation.Biografía del autor:
